Against the background of hype and hysteria of the last seven years, relating to ‘the next big thing’ in terms of where in the world to buy investment real estate for instantly gratifying profit, one nation slowly yet sustainably built a genuine environment of opportunity for discerning real estate investors looking for long-term potential.
When the more heavily hyped nations’ real estate bubbles began to burst as a result of the global financial storm, this one country managed to effortlessly rise from the ashes of its rivals’ burning economies to be a nation that now stands out as continuing to offer genuinely unrivalled prospects for investors looking for unique opportunities, particularly in real estate development.
The country is Argentina…and one of its most exclusive prospects for consideration today is the Gavilan Wine Estates opportunity in San Rafael, Mendoza.
Mendoza is to Argentina what Napa Valley is to California and San Rafael is the center of this stunningly beautiful region that benefits from massive geographical diversity, a fabulous climate and a very strong economy centered on viticulture and tourism.
In the heart of Mendoza’s lush wine country, and just a short drive to the centre of downtown San Rafael are the Gavilan Vineyards. The commanding and idyllic setting of this working vinery makes for a natural environment of maximum appeal. Making the most of the vineyards’ location and increasing productivity, the owners of Gavilan have created a three-pronged opportunity for investors by opening up their home and their business to tourism and real estate development.
At Gavilan not only can you buy in to the developing prospects and profits of a rapidly advancing vineyard, you can become a part of the estate by purchasing a parcel of land and developing it for your own dream home, or for vacation rental to the ever increasing tourism demand in the region. So, you have the option to buy in and harvest grapes on your own parcel of land within the estate, or you can develop real estate for your own personal use or for the benefit of the growing numbers of tourists in the region.
The owners at Gavilan have proven each of the three potential investment prospects ahead of marketing the opportunities available, making this one of the most exciting and genuine ventures currently available in the region.
Firstly, the vineyards are actively and profitably producing three wines already– a Bonarda, a Malbec and the Gavilan house blend. What’s more, the estate offers an international wine club and specialist wine storage facility – therefore, if you’re looking to invest directly in the production of wine in one of the most rapidly advancing areas in the world for viticulture, you may wish to look closely at the parcels of working land Gavilan has for sale to investors like you.
If you don’t wish to manage your own vines there will be an estate management facility on hand to take care of every element of your investment on a day-to-day basis. You also have the alternative option of planting your parcel of land with olive trees…another profitable commodity widely harvested in the Mendoza region of Argentina.
Secondly, the estate will soon be home to the Gavilan Wine Lodge and its hugely anticipated first class gourmet restaurant. The Lodge has been designed by the renowned environmental architect Orlando Armijo Migliassi: his vision is the creation of an exceptionally inviting hotel and dining space for guests looking to enjoy the peace, seclusion and beauty of the vineyards’ setting.
As an investor looking for diverse yet sustainable opportunity for the long-term, you have the opportunity to purchase parcels of land within the Gavilan vineyards for real estate development. The property you then build can be rented out to the increasing tourism interest in the Mendoza region of Argentina, and your guests will be able to benefit from the Gavilan Wine Lodge and its world-class facilities and amenities. Orlando Armijo Migliassi has also designed sample villa models that you may choose from, and each sympathetically blends in with the architecture of the Lodge and the natural environment surrounding the entire estate.
There is even an attractive finance package available to would-be investors to allow you to buy in with less money committed upfront.
Thirdly, one of the prime real estate lots for sale at Gavilan has been earmarked by the vineyards’ owners for their own personal home, thereby absolutely proving the undeniable attraction of the location. As a potential investor looking to purchase a plot of land on which to develop your own home in Argentina, this is proof, if it were needed, of how perfect Gavilan near San Rafael in Mendoza is for you.
Anything you build today will be an exceptional long-term investment as Argentina’s economic fortunes rise – and because strong elements of the nation’s economy are built upon its developing micro-economies of tourism, real estate and agriculture, (of which wine production is of course a part), you could not buy a more appropriately located investment.
In terms of the location of Gavilan Vineyards, its Lodge and Estate, it is spectacular and every lot for sale benefits from unobstructed, breathtaking and dramatic mountain views. The estate is also just a short drive from the heart of San Rafael, a small city yet one offering every amenity and facility you or your rental guests could potentially require.
Perhaps even more importantly for investors to note is the fact that Gavilan is right in the heart of the most up and coming area for development in Mendoza, and benefits from the region’s strongly increasing tourism appeal as well as its growing reputation on the international wine stage.
Unique elements of this multi-tiered investment opportunity include the fact that you do not have to develop your chosen parcel of land today, tomorrow or ever if you do not want to. You can use your land as your own personal vineyard, or combine it within the productivity and profitability of the estate and enjoy the financial rewards of your investment from the sale of your own wine.
If you wish to diversify your harvesting land you can plant olive trees instead – or of course you’re free to develop a home on the land for your own personal use, or to let to tourism demand. The estate will be gated with 24-hour security for peace of mind, and to ensure investors’ interests are actively taken care of in their absence. Everyone who purchases an investment portion of Gavilan will be able to benefit from the Lodge and its first class amenities and facilities.
If you’re interested in the options and potential available but you like to further diversify your investments and therefore wish to only put a small amount of your own money down, Gavilan is offering attractive finance deals to qualifying investors. For example, a $10,000 down payment on a lot, an accepted investor will be offered financing over 5 years at 8% pa, with estate lots currently starting from just US$71,500.
